Bethany Hamilton suffered one of the worst accidents that you can imagine. She was a good Christian Kid who loved the Lord and Loved to surf. She had a bright and promising potential future as a professional surfer… then the Unthinkable Happened.
A 14 foot Tiger Shark rose out of the reef and attacked her. The One Massive Clean bite that it took, sheared through her board and ripped her left arm off. Many a soul would have just fainted and given up and died, but she did not. She started paddling for shore with her right arm and called out for help from her friends. Amazingly she survived.
PS. This amazingly is one of our most visited pages. In a world where the real importance and greatness in life comes with our connection to God… there are very few recent movies that really show this and show young folks learning to love the Lord. Real life is heartbreak, trials & learning… blended with victories, understanding and acceptance. So many Christian Movies really lack this and sadly many just aren't that interesting.
With that as a back drop let us just say that Soul Surfer has all the Needed and Good Qualities mentioned above. We really hope that if you haven't caught this movie yet... you will. It's a master piece of Modern Christian Cinema.
PPS. We don't mention the above to belittle or condemn other movie efforts. We know many are just doing the best they can with what they've got. We just wish more films had that "ZAP" of reality in them that would be a better witness to the World. Why invest millions of dollars and tons of man hours on a project if it's not going to make... an impact!
